🌲 Commissioners Court kicks Central Health vote to next week 🌲

Wednesday, October 11, 2017 by Caleb Pritchard

In what’s becoming a beloved Tuesday tradition, the Travis County Commissioners Court once again postponed a decision on Central Health’s governing financial policies to its next meeting. This time, County Judge Sarah Eckhardt blamed herself for not getting proposed amendments up on the court’s online bulletin board as she had promised her colleagues she would do last week. Without those documents available for review and discussion prior to the meeting, Eckhardt said she would give the commissioners a fresh seven days for due deliberation. She stressed that she wanted this decision to be as transparent as possible since, after all, the entire controversy at hand stems from accusations that Central Health in its dealings has been less than transparent. “Judge, I’m fine with that,” Commissioner Gerald Daugherty told her. “But just so you know and they know, I’m going to be ready to vote next week on something. Because I know what’s going to happen next week. Somebody is not going to like what has been sent back to us and this volleyball game will never end.”
